Heavy metal -- Iraqi style

    Interesting piece here on the struggles of Acrassicauda, a heavy metal band from Iraq that somehow landed in NJ.


    Apparently there was a documentary done about these guys called "Heavy Metal in Baghdad," and at one point the band members were asked why they started a heavy metal band. Their reply: Look around. We live in a heavy metal world.

    The next shot is a bomb going off at night in Baghdad.

    The best part of it, though, is towards the bottom, they have a YouTube clip from the Metallica concert in Newark earlier this year and James Hetfield meets the band and presents them the guitar he just played on stage. The look on the lead singer's face is classic.

    Can't wait to see the look on his face when he gets the $600 bill from Lars.

    That's not metal.

    This is metal!

    For a minute I thought this was about depleted uranium.
